Song Sao Yugeng, a famous Jiangsu and Zhejiang dish, is said to have originated in the Southern Song Dynasty and has a history of more than 800 years. According to Zhou Mi’s "Old Wulin Events": On March 15th in the sixth year of Chunxi (AD 1171), Song Gaozong Zhao Gou boarded an imperial boat and traveled around the West Lake. He ordered to buy turtles and fish from the lake and release them. It was announced that there was a fish soup seller. The woman's name is Song Wusao, who claims to be from Tokyo (now Kaifeng). She drove here and made a living selling fish soup by the West Lake. Gaozong ate the fish soup made by her, admiring it very much, and remembering her old age, she bestowed it on gold and silver silk. Since then, the reputation has risen, and the wealthy and giants have rushed to buy food, and Song Sao's fish soup has become a famous delicacy in the capital. After the continuous development and improvement of the generation chef. The ingredients of Song Sao Yu Geng are more refined and exquisite.
